Pitkin & Brooks put out some of the best patterns of the Brilliant Period – Mayflower, Duchess and Plymouth to name a few. This bowl shows the high standards they held themselves to.
A unique field of 14 tiny hobstars is a highlight of the Plymouth pattern. These are topped on both sides with cane cutting and surrounded on all sides by vesicas of crosshatching. Dividing each tiny hobstar portion of the pattern is a flat hobstar and a deeper hobstar topped with an unusual crosscut motif. One thing that amazes me is the detailed fan at the edge of the bowl. It combines russian, cane and fan cutting to provide a super boarder. Whenever I see Russian used like this, the piece is always very high quality.
The bowl is quite heavy and the blank is exceptionally clear and vibrant. It measures 8″ wide, 3 7/8″ tall and is in perfect condition.
